Our site (at the corner of 5th Street and Chesterfield Avenue in North Vancouver, BC) is very close to public transit, shopping, community services (Lion’s Gate Hospital, Presentation House Theatre, North Shore Neighbourhood House, etc.) and the attractions of downtown Vancouver.
The Seabus Terminus at the base of the hill, beside the Lonsdale Quay, provides access to the transportation network of the Lower Mainland. In just twelve minutes the Seabus will easily get you wherever you’d like to go downtown. As well, bus routes up Lonsdale provide convenient access to the rest of the North Shore.
Heading towards the water, Lonsdale Quay Public Market has bakers, greengrocers, fishmongers, butchers, delicatessens, restaurants and retail stores. Within ten blocks, there are over forty restaurants that serve a broad variety of international foods.
In every direction, you’ll find parks, recreation centres, the hospital, the library, cinemas, public and private schools, and community gardens. Quayside has its own licensed midwifery within our Common House, and we also provide lease to a corner store.
Outdoorsy folks can take their pick of bicycle routes to nearby beaches (Ambleside, Dundarave, Deep Cove) or exploring the North Shore mountains and trails (Grouse Mountain, Lynn Cayon, Mount Seymour, Mount Cypress). There’s world class mountain biking/hiking in the summer, and downhill and cross country skiing in the winter.
